    I would go with raceface. The diabolus cranks are incredibly strong. The evolve DH cranks are pretty nice too.

    Saints are super cheap now if you're not too weight conscious.

    Saints aren't that heavy. They're alot lighter than the Diabolous cranks. They're not far off from some ISIS cranks (including bb).

    No one said they were heavy but they're not the lighest cranks out there. It all depends on what kind of riding he's doing. The comment was just made to make him aware there is lighter if thats the route he wants to go.

    just make sure you get 165mm arms and nothing longer... that bike has a low BB and you'll be smacking pedals on everything if you get them too long.

    real happy with Race Face Atlas cranks but you'll need to double check your BB width requirements, may be too narrow.

    Just make sure you buy a bunch because Kooka's will crack if you just look at them the wrong way.

    yeah what most people don't know is the weight for cranks are given without bottom bracket.....Saints list theirs w/BB........
